For John, BLUF: I don't see the problems the author does, but this view is not isolated, but, rather, spread throughout the Democratic Party. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Here is the sub-headline:
With Kavanaugh on the bench, the court will struggle to retain its authority
From Prospect Magazine, by Canadian Dahlia Lithwick, who has her panties in a bunch, at least on 12 October 2018.
This article wanders over questions of the legitimacy of the Electoral College and the US Senate. She considers the role of Chief Justice Roberts and how he might elect to be the new "swing vote". She talks about how the Court will throttle its agenda to keep away controversial issues. She does forget that President Franklin Roosevelt thought he was dealing with a partisan court.
On the other hand, a good summary of Democratic Party talking points.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
